Democrats criticize Trump for 'empty promises on border wall'

Democrats criticize Trump for 'empty promises on border wall'”

President Donald Trump will visit a section of a US-Mexican border fence in Arizona on Tuesday as he seeks congressional funding for the wall he wants built, administration officials said on Monday.

"This is what I said on Saturday: 'We're closely following the awful events unfolding in Charlottesville, Virginia, ' - this is me speaking".

Donald Trump has said he will find a way for Mexico to repay the United States for construction of the wall but that Congress would need to fund it first.

Trump said, "Obamacare is the disaster and we will repeal and replace as we are just one vote away".

'I promised these families the deaths of their loved ones will not have been in vain, ' he said. "Let me be very clear to Democrats in Congress who oppose the border wall and stand in the way of border security, you are putting all of America's safety at risk".

The wall was one of Trump's most popular campaign vows, prompting frequent rally chants of "Build that wall!"

'We are building a wall on the southern border, which is absolutely necessary, ' he said.

If Congress can not pass a funding bill by the end of September the government will shut down.

Trump also defended his Charlottesville remarks that were widely condemned internationally and by the Republicans.

The administration has since suggested that although taxpayers will fund the wall's construction, Mexicans will foot the bill in the long term through fees charged to border-crossers and taxes levied on monetary remittances sent from USA residents to Mexicans. "Trump even admitted in a private conversation with Mexico that his border wall promise was 'the least important thing".

The waiver announced applies to "a variety of environmental, natural resource, and land management laws" in the San Diego sector.
